Whenever possible, we will accommodate your request although completion of this form does not guarantee promotion. Please note: we are very unlikely to include calls in our newsletter for organizations nearing their submission limit, since this promotion often results in a dramatic submission spike (see further details below).
What is Submishmash Weekly?
Once a week, we send out a free hand-picked list of opportunities for writers, filmmakers, and artists to over 240,000 readers around the world. We also post the newsletter on the Submittable blog. You can sign up for the newsletter here.
When will my call appear in the newsletter?
We generally promote opportunities within 20 days of their deadline, and also include a few calls with no deadline, so as not to discriminate against folks who never rest. Submittable services thousands of organizations and receives regular requests for promotion; in order to keep things fair (and not send out novel-length newsletters), as well as to increase urgency (and thus encourage submissions), we like the 20-day policy.
When will my call appear on social media?
We typically promote your call within one week of your request. If your deadline is very far off, we will schedule your call to appear later.
I don't use Submittable for my organization. Can you still promote me?
The idea behind Submittable promotions is to help our submitters find opportunities they can submit to and track in our software. It's also our way of saying thank you to organizations that use us. Unfortunately, we do not currently have the resources to promote other calls, although we hope to in the future. Please contact us at email@example.com if you'd like a free demo of the Submittable platform, to see if it's a good fit for your organization.
What if my plan only allows for limited submissions?
Submittable promotion can drastically increase the number of submissions you receive. If you currently use a plan with relatively limited free submissions, do be aware that requesting promotion may cause you to reach your cap before your deadline closes. You can easily upgrade your account at any time. We are unlikely to promote organizations that are close to their submission cap.
How often can you promote me?
We try not to promote the same organization more than once in a two-month period for the sake of equity (and interest). We measure the two-month period based on your last inclusion in Submishmash Weekly (SMMW). For example, if you were featured in SMMW on March 15, we will not be able to include your organization again until May 15 or after. You may submit your request in anticipation, but please ensure your deadline will fall within the correct range.
Can you promote my call multiple times if the deadline has changed or been extended?
In order to service all organizations equally, we can only promote your call once within a two-month period. If your deadline changes before your call has appeared in the newsletter or your social media has concluded, please contact us with updated details and we will edit your remaining promotions.
I just set a deadline that's months and months from now. When should I request promotion?
The sooner the better. As soon as you have a firm deadline, please be in touch. We'll make a note of it and schedule it for inclusion in the newsletter within 20 days of the deadline. We'll hold off on social media until your submissions period opens, and we'll try to space posts out during that time.
Why can't you include the paragraph I sent?
Due to limited space, your call will typically consist of 1-2 lines of description in the newsletter. If there are specific details you'd like included, please let us know.
If so, consider completing this questionnaire so that we might reach out to you for a case study or blog article.
We're also interested in organizations that use Submittable in unique ways. Please be in touch.
We look forward to celebrating your great work!
